Well sure we begrudge San Pedro progress - precisely because all that progress results is some loss of charm. I hated it when the pull-ferry was replaced by the bridge. And there are already too many hotels, I can't believe they're building more.

Like Otter, if I want a fancy airport I can go places that have them - sometimes I do.

Of course, I don't live in San Pedro. I don't have to put up with that airport traffic every day. I didn't have to worry about whether the pull ferry would or would not be there when I got to the cut. I don't depend on San Pedro's tourism for my living. It's all a matter of perspective...

I can never remember which is better . . . safe? . . . or sorry?
